Since 2016, NAHAD members have come together in the fight to bring clean, safe drinking water to those in need around the world. Through donations on dues renewal forms and awareness campaigns tied to our annual conventions, we have raised over $33,000. This money has provided more than 1,000 people access to clean water and bring us closer to ending the global water crisis.

No one should have to live without clean water. Yet unfortunately more than 785 million people, twice the population of the United States, do not have access to this precious resource. This is why NAHAD decided to make a difference and support charity: water, a nonprofit organization that brings clean water to millions worldwide.
NAHAD launched our social cause initiative in 2016 to support a cause connected to the hose industry: clean water. As a result, NAHAD has joined with charity: water to directly support water projects in countries with the greatest need. charity: water works in 29 counties worldwide focusing on providing rural communities with their first access to clean water. Over the past 15 years, the organization has implemented over 94,000 water projects to provide safe, clean water for more than 14 million people. Fully 100 percent of NAHAD’s donation will go directly to water project costs (private donors cover salaries and overhead).
